Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Spent the week here in August and the place was perfect for us. We had the choice of crossing the street to a private beach, walking around the corner to the public beach or walking a little further north to a perfect little sandy beach. We had our three small grandchildren with us so the beach and ocean were all we needed to entertain them daily. There are also three restaurants and ice cream shops within walking distance. We had the use of two kayaks and four bikes which were an added bonus to renting this place. The downtown area of Milford is only a short drive away with some nice restaurants. We would definitely rent this place again.

Heavenly Place to stay!

I stayed with my family for a week and had a great time! My grandchild was christened and we had a small get together at this heavenly place.

The house was clean and the location is perfect! We all loved it!

Thanks for sharing this wonderful place!

absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here over the summer and we could not have asked for more. The house is literally a stones throw away from the beach and there is a lovely park twenty yards from the property that is perfect for little kids. The house is a quintessential, sea shells, cozy rooms, and the sounds of the ocean make a perfect atmosphere. And there are so many great restaurants in the area! Overall, it was a beautiful place to stay and the owner is so sweet and helpful. I loved it there and can't wait to go back.

Dreamy beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at this house!! It was so relaxing to be able to listen to the waves crashing on the shore from our bedroom window. I loved that the beach was only a couple hundred feet from the front door. The house was very clean and charming, and the wifi connection was fast and easy to connect to. All of the neighbors were nice, and the owner was very friendly and helpful. Finding a grocery store, pharmacy, or restaurant was no issue because a plaza was located not even two miles away. The area seemed very safe and suitable for all ages. Overall, this house and the location facilitated a very relaxing, romantic week. I will definitely be returning!!

Paradise Week

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I enjoyed a very relaxing week at this home.. It was all, and then more than we had expected. The house was very clean, well appointed and the use of the internet meant that our busy family could keep connected. My grandchildren came for a cookout and swim at the beach. We also rode bikes around the neighborhood after dinner. There is a very nice restaurant within walking distance so we could walk off the weight that we put on. The owner is very friendly, readily available, and takes pride in her home. I would recommend this property to anyone wishing a respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a lovely week at this rental property. The owner was very helpful and honest. The property was clean and well-maintained, and was accurately described in its listing. The water views were lovely, both from the relaxing front porch and the second floor sunroom. The beach was directly across the street and easily accessible; it was clean and well-kept. I would definitely recommend this rental to a friend.
